Hey all,

Felt I should let you all know again. Donations are considerably down at the moment and we are dipping into our reserves every month. Whilst we'll be able to last a while like this, it won't last forever. We do need to increase the number of subscription donators that we have in place if we wish to be able to keep our services running the way they usually are.

It's a year since I've made any similar appeal - typically we see numbers of donators drop every so often and these are often replaced by others setting up new ones. When this doesn't happen for too long though, we start to run at a deficit.

We appreciate everything we get from people and we know it can be quite difficult for most to be able to donate some cash into the pot but all of this stuff doesn't come for free either. Even if you just use the teamspeak or perhaps occasionally go on the servers, consider donating £5 a month if you don't already - it's far more stable for us if we have a lot of people donating a small amount than if we have a few donating large amounts. If you're in a position to be able to do so and you'd like to consider giving the community a lifeline to enable it to keep going, please use the following link and setup a subscription for £5 a month if you don't already.

I believe I am currently paying every month? You just scared me when you said we're considerably down. Just wondering.

Aye, soon as Kurox gets his job my outgoings will drop down considerably so I'll be able to increase my subscription too.

Exactly how much do we need to hit, to breakeven on server costs?

We were at least £30-40 a month short of hitting our target. Ideally we want to be slightly above that so we can begin to build up a safety net again - the one thats saved us from dying out a few times now.

I have updated all the subscribers lists - so if your name is purple you currently donate and I can see your sub. There was one peculiarity though, so if you reckon you've an active sub and your name on the forum does not reflect your status, let me know.
